Jinks/Cohen hatches ‘Carrier’

Evered pitch gets new company started

NEW YORK — Dan Jinks, who ran producer Martin Bregman’s company for five years, has set up a producing partnership with Bruce Cohen, a producer of “Mouse Hunt” and “The Flintstones.” The duo has formed the Jinks/Cohen Co., and will get the shingle started with “Carrier,” a pitch by Charles Evered that was purchased in a preemptive buy by DreamWorks.

“Carrier” is the story of three generations of elite naval servicemen who assemble for a commemorative cruise on a soon-to-be decommissioned aircraft carrier. En route, a crisis occurs, which forces the veterans and active duty servicemen to join forces and save the ship.

Evered is a playwright who serves in the Air Force reserves and previously set up “Asteroid Man” at Amblin. He’s repped by Alan Gasmer of William Morris and attorney Alan Hergott.

Under Bregman, Jinks produced Touchstone’s “Nothing to Lose” and set up “Carlito’s Way” and “The Shadow.” Cohen has a long list of production credits, including exec producing “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar” and co-producing “Alive.” He started his career as a DGA trainee on Steven Spielberg’s “The Color Purple.”
